T20 World Cup 2024: ‘Jasprit Bumrah is best player in Indian team’- Sanjay Manjrekar takes a dig at Virat Kohli; Fans react

Bumrah was Player of the Match in both of India's wins in T20 World Cup so far.

Jasprit Bumrah and Virat Kohli  |GettySanjay Manjrekar, former India cricketer has always been a critic of Virat Kohli right from the batter’s debut. Manjrekar has always been minutely dissecting Virat Kohli’s career and took a dig at him after Jasprit Bumrah inspired India’s 6-wicket win over Pakistan in T20 World Cup 2024.

Despite India's lowest-ever score against Pakistan in T20 World Cup history (119), Bumrah's outstanding bowling turned the tide in India's favor.

Bumrah's match-winning session saw him take three wickets for 14 runs, shredding Pakistan's batting order and securing India's tight triumph. Manjrekar praised Bumrah's efforts, pointing out how the pacer has been crucial for India while the media has primarily focused on Kohli.

"While Indian media obsesses over Virat & Co, Jasprit Bumrah quietly wins games for India single-handedly. By far the best player in the Indian team & has been for a while now. #JaspritBumrah #ICCT20WC," Manjrekar wrote on X.

Kohli, India's star batsman in prior matches against Pakistan, had a rare poor outing, scoring only four runs. Manjrekar's comments emphasized Bumrah's continuous contributions, particularly in high-pressure situations.

However, fans were not impressed by Manjrekar’s sly dig at Virat Kohli and took the ex-cricketer to task on social media.
